Mid-Major College Basketball Failures: The Worst of the Worst--Big Apple Buckets
Milwaukee (2-13, 0-3 Horizon) – I’d be remiss if I didn’t give a “shout out” to the Horizon League, mainly because Big Apple Buckets creator John has a soft spot for Midwestern mid-major basketball. It has been a precipitous drop for the Panthers, as they free-falled in KenPom’s ratings from #200 at the beginning of the season to #313 currently. It wasn’t supposed to be this bad, especially after an early season victory over Davidson, but Rob Jeter’s streak of four straight winning seasons in Milwaukee is all but over. Since their improbable triumph over Davidson, the Panthers have lost ten games by double digits and find themselves in the Horizon League cellar, even though JUCO standout Jordan Aaron has done a respectable job replacing point guard Kaylon Williams. The offense has been difficult to watch, as the Panthers continue to jack up a high quantity of threes, despite shooting an abysmal 27.0% from behind the arc.
